The new restaurants and bars opening in London this week

Our regular weekly guide to what to expect from the week ahead in London, with the restaurants, bars and more opening their doors across town. 


ABC Kitchens at The EmoryABC Kitchens at The Emory

Knightsbridge -  Old Barrack Yard, London SW1X 7NP

The Emory is the latest hotel from the Maybourne group and they've built it right next to another hotel of theirs, The Berkeley. Here, the main restaurant comes from Jean-Georges Vongerichten, who last teamed up with them at The Connaught. The restaurant will be an amalgamation of all his New York ABC group, with dishes including crab toast and crispy fish tacos.

Opening date: 15 April 2024



Mayfair -  20 Berkeley St, London W1J 8EE

This comes from the team that opened 20 Berkeley on the same spot. Clearly, that wasn't working for them as they've completely relaunched the restaurant, this time with much more involvement from chef Endo Kazutoshi (of Sumi and Endo at The Rotunda). New dishes include wagyu beef tartare, tuna tataki and Iberico pork with apple barley miso, as well as a bespoke Konro grill for A4 wagyu sirloin and more.

Opening date: 17 April 2024



Shoreditch -  5 Leonard Circus, London EC2A 4DQ

Bangers have previously built up a stellar reputation as a delivery/collection-only breakfast buns seller, and now they've landed their own place. Here you can expect buns like their Original breakfast sandwich (smashed free-range pork sausage, fried Clarence Court egg, melted Red Leicester slice) and lots more. New to the menu will be breakfast smoothies and hash browns as well as tomato and mushroom pots.

Opening date: 19 April 2024


Temper BurgerTemper Burger

White City -  Unit 8, 2, Television Centre, 101 Wood Ln, London W12 7FR

For their latest opening, Temper are trying something new - this is primarily all about double-patty smash burgers. Toppings on those burgers include raclette cheese and smoked brisket, and you'll be able to get a Sloppy Joe here too. On top of that, you can have chilli cheese fries which come with a raclette burner, and a drunken dessert to finish. 

Opening date: 17 April 2024


Astrid BakeryAstrid Bakery

Muswell Hill -  118A Alexandra Park Rd, London N10 2AH

Astrid Bakery was started by former fashion journalist Charlotte O'Kelly as a from-home delivery service during lockdown. This sees her opening it as a fully-fledged bakery in Muswell Hill.  Expect amazing cinnamon buns made with cultured butter and Wildfarmed flour and lots more besides. It opened very briefly over the past weekend as a one-off and reopens properly on Friday. 

Opening date: 19 April 2024


BAM Karaoke BoxBAM Karaoke Box

Victoria -  74 Victoria Street, London W1E 6SQ

If you like a bit of karaoke but just wish it was all a bit more luxe - BAM Karaoke Box is for you. Taking over from where M was in Victoria, it's a lavishly designed karaoke bar that's gone as all-out with the food as they have with the design. They've brought in chef Sabrina Gidda to create a Parisian-influenced menu to keep you fuelled during all that singing. 

Opening date: 18 April 2024



Borough Market -  2-4 Bedale St, London SE1 9AL

A few weeks they opened Agora downstairs and now the same team, led by Smokstak's David Carter, is opening the main event, Oma. It's a Greek-inspired restaurant and they've brought in Nick Molyviatis, former head chef of Kiln, to work on the menu. Dishes to look out for here will be the brown crab borek and the lamb belly and caramelised date molasses skewers.

Opening date: 16 April 2024


Yard Sale Tufnell ParkYard Sale Tufnell Park

Tufnell Park -  6 Dartmouth Park Hill, London NW5 1HL

There's no stopping the expansion of Yard Sale and judging by the reaction to the announcement of their Tufnell Park branch, this might be their most popular yet. Expect the usual suspects, pizza-wise, including one of our favourites, the TSB (tenderstem broccoli, pine nuts, garlic oil & Parmesan).

Opening date: 15 April 2024  (50% off pizza 15-17 April and 22-24 April)


Lina StoresLina Stores

South Kensington - 15 Exhibition Rd, London SW7 2HE

Another small restaurant group that continues to expand is Lina Stores, opening their latest restaurant where the old Le Pain Quotidien used to be in South Ken. As with most of their recent openings, it's an all-day Italian affair that should be extremely handy for anyone taking in one of the museums. It'll also be a handy place to pop in for a drink in the evenings too. 

Opening date: 19 April 2024
